Games room with full size table tennis table. Old beams add character to an open-plan living room and dining area incorporating a cream kitchen at one end. Doors from the living room open onto a sheltered patio excellent for alfresco dining, beside a small walled terraced garden which leads up to the field beyond. With free WiFi. Plenty of safe parking in the courtyard at the side of the cottage. Very safe and quiet location. We try to be 'green' and have solar panels for electricity/hot water, along with mains electricity, and an electric car solar power point. Helston is just over 2 miles away and has much to offer for all ages, with a short-hole golf course, a swimming pool and sports centre, a boating lake, tennis courts and Flambards theme park. Discover the nearby sublime beaches and hidden coves. Praa Sands is great for surfers, along with its golden beach. Enjoy the inland and coastal footpaths and experience the breathtaking sea views from the granite cliff tops. Nearby Penzance is bustling and lively with something for everyone. Marazion, with its long stretch of sandy beach, overlooks the magical St Michael's Mount, which can be ventured across, by ferry or by foot over the cobbled causeway at low tide. Falmouth, famous for its sea-faring heritage, harbour, Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle and National Maritime Museum is peppered with galleries and gift shops, traditional inns and eateries set along characterful streets. St. Ives, with its maze of narrow cobbled streets and fisherman's cottages,Tate St Ives and other art galleries and its four fabulous beaches is just a short drive away. And that's not to mention the various National Trust properties, magnificent gardens, Minack Theatre and Lands End, all in the close vicinity. This property is in a courtyard setting adjacent to The Old Farmhouse (sleeps 8) and Barn Owl Cottage (sleeps 4) which can also be booked via Holiday Lettings We are less than a mile from the B3297 1. From the B3297 Redruth to Helston road, take the right hand turning (if travelling south) signed to Coverack Bridges and follow the road down the hill and over the bridge. 2. Turn right here at the Coverack Bridges sign and follow through the valley until you reach a group of properties on the right with a 'no through road' sign, 3. Take this right hand turning (pretty much straight ahead) and continue until there is a fork and bear left. 4. You will pass 2 bungalows on the left and a cottage on the right. We are about 75 yards on the left. More
